Hanshin Close on Messenger

by Patrick Newman (Dec 6, 2009)

Hanshin appears to be making progress in their search for pitching.

Daily Sports is reporting that the Hanshin is  sending a representative to the States next week to finalize a deal with big righty Randy Messenger. He will, of course, be billed in the Japanese media as a former teammate of Kenji Johjima's. But given that Messenger nearly joined the Carp in mid-2009, Joh's influence in this signing may have been limited.

Daily also mentions that the Tigers are still looking at Jason Bulger as well, and if he comes off the Angels' 40-man roster they could make a play for him.
